FOOTHILL RANCH, Calif. -- November 20, 2013

iBASEt, the developer of the Solumina Product Lifecycle Execution software
suite, announced today that it successfully deployed its Solumina
Manufacturing Execution System (MES) software solution for L-3 Platform
Integration more quickly than any previous installation. L-3 Platform
Integration selected Solumina as its paperless shop floor control system to
continue an ongoing initiative to increase the efficiency of its existing
resources, while improving performance and quality objectives. Solumina’s
out-of-the-box capabilities will provide enhanced visibility and control of
the shop floor, while standardizing existing processes to promote a best
practices approach to L-3 Platform Integration’s maintenance, repair and
overhaul (MRO) and modification center.

Solumina’s robust offering will transform L-3 Platform Integration’s MRO
processes by providing real-time visibility of work in process on the shop
floor and concurrent problem resolution that extends into the supplier
network. Supervisors will also be able to analyze traceable data to address
and resolve bottlenecks and discrepancies quickly.

Additionally, Solumina will manage nonconformances, deliver work instructions
to the shop floor and synchronize L-3 Platform Integration’s enterprise data
in real-time.

The expected result is improved quality, greater efficiency and reduced cycle
times.

Solumina integrates planning, technical publications, drawings, engineering
change orders and other documents into an electronic package that is available
to the mechanic with the click of a button. The system makes possible
significant cost savings and process improvements as the software is
implemented throughout the facility.

Solumina’s solution was selected competitively and was deployed at the Waco
integration center within six months of the project’s start.

“With the help of L-3 Platform Integration’s dedicated team, we were able to
implement Solumina quickly and efficiently,” said Michael Salehpour, iBASEt,
Vice President of Services. “Rapid implementations in under six months are a
result of our robust, out-of-the-box solution. We look forward to working with
L-3 on other projects and replicating this process.”
